I performed a long-overdue task recently. I sorted through, and categorized a myriad of papers that I have collected over many years. Yes, a lot!
I write – albeit not always consistently, and I make notes on observations. I can and will use these in future writing endeavours.
One of the items I found in my mountains of collected thoughts and memories was a birthday card. The words struck a chord with me because I love the thought that God made each of to His unique pattern. I’d like to share the words with you and hope that if you are in need of encouragement today maybe this will help.
You are a gift!
God made loving people to do His work on earth,
To give a hug or lend a helping hand.
He gave them words of encouragement, and cheer, and tender hearts that care and understand.
God made loving people to show us day by day
How far the wonders of His love can go.
And all the good they do helps make a better world.
A little bit of heaven here below.
There is no one else like you.
You have gifts that only you can give the world.
You have blessings others can only receive through you.
The Lord designed every detail of who you are,
And the world is blessed to have you in it.
May the Lord guide and keep you safe and well,
And show you how special you are.
